Canskate is designed to teach skaters the fundamentals of Balance, Agility and Control. Pre Canskate is a fun environment with bright colours and age appropriate teaching aids. As skater begin to be able to get up and move without assistance, they will be moved to a group within the canskate session to allow them to progress at their own pace. In the Pre Canskate program it is our goal to teach skaters independence by being able to get up on their own and balance without assistance while providing a fun and safe atmosphere for them to learn.

It is recommended to view your skaters session from the seating area as this will give our coaching staff the skaters full attention.
Skaters should wear comfortable/flexible clothing, this will help your skater move freely while learning how to skate. Snow suits are not recommended as they are restricting and very hot. Summer camp link is provided below for anyone interested in continuing with skating during the summer.

Canskate Private Lessons are designed to help skaters reach their goals by giving skaters personal attention in conjunction with the group instruction already provided. This program has limited enrollment. Our coaches at the Mariposa School of Skating are National Coach Certified level 1-5 and work with skaters from beginner to World and Olympic level. Lessons through this program are 15 minutes in duration and will be taught by a variety coaches set up by our Co-Ordinator to help your skater sample different coaching styles as well as getting help with different disciplines within skating. I have provided the link below if you are interested in purchasing private lessons.

Over the past 2 years our hockey team has participated in Mariposa’s skating program as part of our team development. I have observed immediate and long term results from each of our players edges, agility and Transitions. The results have been remarkable and as a coach I firmly believe in the skill of skating as critical foundation to any player. We will continue to invest our teams development money with Mariposa now and in the future. Mariposa’s staff is world class and nothing compares to the Team Edge and Balance Program!
